Introduction to restoration
I've recently gotten into restoring old bicycles. So far it's been more superficial work like cleaning the frame/rims/components and putting on new tires or brake shoes. Looking forward to learning more around here.
There's something about taking an object that's forgotten, grimy, and rusty and turning it into something shiny and desirable and, most importantly, used.
(Just posted a query in classic & vintage about my latest project, a Motobécane that I've been unable to identify despite going through lots of Motobécane forum threads...)
